Willie Mays "The Catch" 54 Years Later

Fifty four years ago today (Sept. 29, 1954), Wille Mays made the greatest catch in World Series History and maybe baseball history.

In the 8th inning of Game 1 in the 1954 World Series, Willie Mays made the unbelievable over-the-shoulder catch to rob Cleveland's Vic Wertz of an extra base hit and potential game winning RBIs. The Giants later won the game in the 10th inning and went on to sweep the Cleveland Indians to win the '54 World Series.

Willie Mays was part of Shea Stadium's closing ceremonies on Sunday was at an MAB autograph show over the weekend. This would be a great photo to have Mays' signature!
